Thanks for the feedback.

I have changed the homescreen to tiles instead. See Post#1 for updated screenshot!

It still requires some tweaks and the colors maybe changed.

Let me know what you think.

Ok after pulling an all-niter here is an alpha release. It can be found on POST#1

Note that there will be a bit of small fixes that need to be done still.

Please test for me and give me some feedback......

Try changing the fonts to something more modern like Roboto.

Everything looks very cluttered, trying making the elements fit better on the screen. Also make the icons and labels in each block small and use a different font.

Either mute the colors or try a different pallete of colors: http://www.colourlovers.com/palettes

Yes, sounds like Dee Lite's "Groove is in the Air" ... Personally I find the colors too flashy...

but well, if you look at iOS7 release last year, the designer Johnny Ive also changed the usual classy icons with some ugly flashy flat ones. It was very criticized - with good reason for me - but millions of people got used to this anyway with time.

So even if I don't like it and won't use it, I guess this WIP is anyway trendy and could please come users.
And overall, it's always nice to see new skinners joining the game!!!

Yes I am a fan of roboto I will add the font as an alternative.

By cluttered.. Do you mean the homescreen icons? I may go back to a row of 7 instead of 8. I must Note that in the screenshot I am using the Big Font option not the Default.

Fyi there is an option in the skin settings to turn the colored icons off.

I will be adding many different color themes of icons withon time. I will also have many different primary (bkgd) and secondary (slider, buttons, selection) color options.

The 90s winamp post was in reference to the old icon setup, I have since changed the look of the homescreen.
